The Prince of Wales told a schoolboy it "was really fun being a grandfather" to Prince George, who was born on Monday afternoon.

Charles met George Austin, nine, as he opened a new garden at Kemble railway station in Gloucestershire, two days after he met his grandson for the first time.

George and sister Lucinda, four, were at the station - the closest to the Prince's Highgrove home - with their grandparents.

"He said it was really fun being a grandfather."
